Lantern Making kits

As our usual Lantern parade can’t go ahead we wanted to give people the opportunity to make lanterns and create something at home, at this special time of year. The lantern could even be part of your Window Wanderland display. Doca are offering lantern making kits which contain all the materials needed to make a star-shaped lantern. If you would like some more lantern-making inspiration head to YouTube for some tutorials on all different sized and shaped lanterns.

The kit contains:

  • Small pot of PVA Glue
  • Roll of masking tape
  • Buff willow
  • 3 sheets of wet strength tissue
  • Bamboo cane
  • Cable ties
  • Star lantern pattern
  • LED light and batteries
  • With an instruction leaflet on how to make Star-shaped willow lanterns


1 x Star Lantern Kit is £10

2 x Star Lantern Kits £17 

3 x Star Lantern Kits £24
